have the democratic convention. spectacular performances by michelle obama and bill clinton. president obama got less stellar reviews, but still a solid speech. the totality of that message, when you had romney, his goal was to make people like him better. obama was to try to address the sense of disappointment many people have. from these initial numbers, they could fade back, it looks like he's done that. at least a little bit. >> john, both of these polls were done after the jobs report on friday? >> reporter: the gallup poll, melissa, is a seven-day tracking poll. so it had results from s days. only friday and saturday in that poll was after the jobs report. the rasmussen poll is a three-day tracking poll. so it's numbers included sunday, saturday and friday. so, yes, the rasmussen poll included the jobs report numbers. >> that is the one that showed obama in the lead. all right, john. thank you very much for that. appreciate it. >>> teachers in chicago are on strike today in the city's first school shutdown in 25 years. mayor rahm emanuel saying he will push to end the strike quic

to "doesn't she get it?" or "imagine if michelle obama said that." it was probably not something that the campaign wanted as a structure of a statement. she was talking about her husband and talking about seeing her husband. the responses that you chose to run for office. what we demand of our candidates is a lot. even for the criticism that he is getting about not doing enough in terms of events, he is doing a tremendous number of fund-raising, having a discussion about whether we should do other things. it is incredibly hard and incredibly grueling. it is impressive that they don't make more mistakes and off-cue moments. myan't imagine watching husband go through that. my husband being very protective of me when they are critical. >> my family loves reading by criticism. why do you get so upset about it? i think that they are thinking it. i will say that ann romney is feisty. i love what she did because it is so he a man at the helm tamp they don't her down too much. -- because she is so human, i hope they don't tamp her down too much. she is looking right at you, our eyes are
